Following a road traffic accident, whiplash injuries are amongst the most common type of injury suffered by the victims. Many people think that they have escaped injury, only to find that their head and neck become painful a few days later.
Receiving medical attention is vital for this type of injury as the neck needs to be stabilised in order to heal, otherwise the pain will increase and may cause further problems. If you have suffered a car crash whiplash injury through no fault of your own, we may be able to help you claim compensation.

Car crash whiplash claims
We deal with many whiplash claims every year, and we are able to estimate the amount of compensation you are likely to receive, based on similar cases that we have processed. You may be surprised to realise that claims such as these are usually straightforward, as long as you have received medical treatment for your whiplash injury soon after the accident.
Once you have decided to make a claim for compensation, we will put you in touch with a specialist, no-win, no-fee* personal injury solicitor, who will have previous experience of making car crash whiplash compensation claims. The solicitor will deal with your case and represent you in court, and working on a no-win, no-fee* basis means that there is no cost to you to start a claim.
The pain from car crash whiplash injuries can last a long time, and this type of injury needs to be treated seriously as the neck is such a delicate area. You may need to attend an independent medical assessment as part of your claim, and a full report will be required from your doctor. So keeping a note of which medical staff you see, and when, will help the progress of your claim.
